After a courageous yearlong battle with acute myeloid leukemia, Mr. Patrick M. Green passed away on November 21, 2021, at his home with family by his side.
Pat attended St. James Catholic grade school in Wausau, WI, graduating from Newman Catholic High school in 1966. He proudly served in the US Army from 1967-1969. After an extended combat tour on Korea’s DMZ, Pat was discharged where he resumed helping his family’s jukebox and pinball machine business in Wausau, WI. Pat worked for General Telephone from 1969-1975 and began his driving career at UPS in 1976. In Feb 2010, Pat retired a proud 24-year UPS Teamster.
Pat was a devoted father and husband who enjoyed spending a lifetime of laughter at the family’s summer cottage in Boulder Junction, WI. Later in life, he and his brother Jerry enjoyed spending time on Florida’s Anna Maria Island in the winter while visiting family and friends. Those who knew Pat- knew what a loving, compassionate, and patient man he was. He will be greatly missed.
